The Governor of Virginia has issued a proclamation for Confederate History Month. It is incredible that government officials still do such things. The Confederacy was, from beginning to end, treasonous. The aim of the Confederacy was destruction of the United States of America, in order to preserve slavery. Will Confederate History Month include discussion of the policy to murder captured Union troops? Or perhaps a musical celebration of terrorists like Quantrell's Raiders?
Next month, maybe Virginians can celebrate the sacrifices of the Hitler Youth, or the Red Guards. It is not nearly enough to talk about the "sacrifices and bravery" of the Confederate Army -- does not change that the Confederacy was evil, and its defenders remain shameful and repugnant.
The Robert McConnell hates America.
Georgia offers the same crap.
